Network system group

Definition of Network system group in The Network Encyclopedia.

What is Network system group?

A special identity or system group that exists on all servers and workstations running Microsoft Windows NT and Windows 2000. The Network group includes any user who has successfully connected to a shared resource on the computer from over the network.

The group enables network users to access resources on the computer, in contrast to the Interactive group, which enables locally logged-on users to access resources on the machine.

Administrators cannot modify system groups. This means that they cannot directly modify membership in the Network group or the rights of the group.
